Do Your Makeup on The Commute? You Need These
There is no shame in doing your makeup on your morning commute. The once taboo act of applying cosmetics in public (shock, horror!) is no longer such a big deal. We are busy working women, and some mornings (okay, most), we'll have a crack-of-the-dawn meeting, a date with the gym or just a snooze-button incident, so it makes sense to multitask makeup application with travel while listening to the latest podcast that takes our fancy—because we're clever like that. Of course, whatever your preferred mode of transport, you want to ensure that the products you use are easy enough to apply on the go; we're talking products that incorporate mirrors, formulas that work on more than one part of your face, and crucially anything that doesn't require a ton of brushes. Because if you have a brush in one hand and the product in the other, no one's going to hold that mirror for you. Keep scrolling for the Byrdie-approved makeup products you can use on the go.
Jane Iredale Refill-Me Refillable Loose Powder Brush (£30)
This is a mess- and fuss-free way to apply loose powder on your morning commute—thanks to the powder being housed in the handle. Because we can't count the amount of times we have dusted ourselves and the person next to us (insert monkey-covering-eyes emoji here).
Perricone MD No Mascara Mascara (£25)
Opt for a mascara with a compact comb rather than a big fat brush; you're less likely to end up with mascara on your eyelids or cheek that way. In fact, a comb can often help you get right into the root to lift and elongate the lashes. Plus, this mascara has added biotin and neuropeptides to condition and strengthen your lashes.
Moschino Metallic Leather-Trimmed Quilted Shell Cosmetics Case (£120)
Of course you need a compact makeup bag to house your expert edit of products in; this Moschino cosmetics case will do nicely.
